5 best watches to buy with AED 100,000
With a plethora of options out there, one can often feel overwhelmed. So, in order to create your own watch collection with a budget of AED 100,000, you have to look for a few specific models that fulfill certain requirements. To begin with, you obviously need two watches that you can swap between on a daily basis. Then you need a few dedicated to certain occasions.
While you can always scroll through the internet and find a collection of your own, we have created a list for you that will definitely help you make the best decision. Here’s a list of watches that I would personally pick if I were to put together a watch collection with AED 100,000.
- Tissot PRX Automatic
- Breitling SuperOcean
- Tudor Pelagos 39
- Omega Speedmaster
- Rolex Datejust 41
Tissot PRX Automatic
Tissot PRX is one of the most affordable automatic watches that often goes underrated. Yes, we are starting the list with an affordable option just to save up as much as possible for everyone’s favorite – a Rolex.
Tissot Powermatic 80 PRX feels extremely premium due to its integrated bracelet and the open case back. The watch is powered by an Automatic Self-Widining movement that offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours. Featuring a 40mm case, the watch is available in multiple dial color options, with the most popular ones being the Blue and the Ice Blue variants.
Price: Roughly AED 2,800
Breitling SuperOcean Heritage
Breitling SuperOcean is another Automatic watch on the list. This dive watch is the perfect piece for someone looking for a sports watch. Available in a variety of colorways, the Blue and Green dial color options look quite elegant.
The watch is available either with a stainless steel bracelet or a rubber strap.
Price: Roughly AED 15,000
Tudor Pelagos 39
Anyone who is getting started with a luxury watch collection should definitely own a Tudor. Known for being started by Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, the brand has achieved a lot over the years. The Pelagos series is the alternative to the Rolex Submariner. It is available either with a black or a blue dial.
The best part about buying a Tudor Pelagos is that it features a steel bracelet but comes with an additional strap in the box. It flaunts a 39mm case, which also fits perfectly on most wrists.
Price: Roughly AED 16,000
If you are starting a watch collection, there has to be at least one Chronograph model in it. And what could you be a better Chronograph than the Omega Speedmaster? Known as the Moonwatch, the timepiece is popular for being used by NASA astronauts.
The 42mm variat of the watch comes with a steel bracelet and a black dial. It also features a black tachymeter scale that makes it the perfect timepeice for enthusiasts. You can also replace the bracelet with a rubber strap to give it a sporty feel.
Price: Roughly 25,000
Rolex Datejust 41
I decided to stick to spending only 50% of the budget when picking out these watches so that I could save the other half for a nice Rolex. For around AED 50,000, you do not really have a lot of options in hand. Considering there are huge waitlists on most of the Rolex models, there is a high chance that you will have to buy your first Rolex through the secondary market. Hence, the best possible option around the AED 50k range would be a Rolex Datejust 41mm.
Available in a variety of configurations, you can always pick and choose the one you like. As I have already picked out some sporty models, this has to be a dress watch that I can wear on special occasions. The perfect way to configure a Datejust as a dress watch is to pair it with a Jubilee bracelet. Depending on what you like, you can either opt for a smooth bezel or a fluted bezel. On top of that, you also get to choose the dial color that you like the most. However, depending on the combination you pick, the price can vary.
Price: Between AED 40,000 – AED 50,000
Best watch collection for AED 100,000
Above mentioned watches are just recommendations from us. These are the watches that I, as a watch enthusiast, would personally buy. However, you can always pick the ones that you like the most. There are several watch brands that you can consider under that price point. Besides the brands already mentioned above, you can also consider buying watches from one of the other top brands. These include Omega, Panerai, Cartier, Hublot, Casio, Seiko, and Longines, among many others.
